STYLEwise: Winter’s glow

WINTER isn't exactly kind to our skin. Outdoors the cold air and wind can be drying and indoors, heating and air-conditioning comes with its own set of irritants.

So what's a social animal to do to maintain some semblance of glamour and feelgood skin throughout this colder, darker period?

Well Napoleon Perdis Global Makeup Artist, Shev Kelly has some foundation tips for winter that will see you put your best face forward.

Whether you are a makeup minimalist or prefer a more dramatic look, it's important to cleanse, nourish and nurture the skin with serums, primers and moisturizers. This will ensure your makeup glides on easily and looks fresh all day.

1. Transform your skin from dull to dazzling by using a luminous or brightening primer. They are the perfect choice to add a hint of sheen, hydration and an all-round gorgeous glow. For best results apply before your foundation, mix together or add on top of your makeup look.

2. Keep your foundation minimal, not mask like. Too much foundation can sit in dry areas of the skin and emphasize unwanted lines. Ideal choices for winter are fresh and luminous options like a Tinted Moisturisers or BBB Cream. They provide a hint of colour and amazing long lasting hydration.

3. Revitalise the skin by using a hydrating mist to refresh your complexion. With one quick spritz your skin will feel and look conditioned and smoother. With the ability to be used before or after makeup application it's a must-have for all skin types. Combined ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Chamomile will also help to boost the skins natural moisture level.

Napolean Perdis has long preached makeup application must always begin with a skin smoothing base, and his mantra "Not to prime is a crime" has been adopted by fans from Manhattan to Melbourne and everywhere in between. With one primer sold every three minutes, Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation SKin Primer is the perfect base for anyone, no matter what their story.
